Cooking lessons!

December 11, 2009

Had some fun with a bit of difference last night….cooking lessons in Paris!

Even though I would of enjoyed cooking something a bit more complicated like a french dish, my friend and I enjoyed learning to cook vietnamese dishes. We made ‘SUCCESSFULLY’ …nems (which are spring rolls in english) and two dishes, pork caramel and chicken and pineapple in a caramel sauce.

Was alot of fun…especially because we didn’t have to wash up after and our chef, Christian was extremely cute! 

Can’t wait to book again in the new year….bon appetite everyone!

Weekend a la campagne (countryside)

December 11, 2009

We went to meet one of JL’s old friends called JF!!…he lives in the countryside…2 hours outside of Paris. So we set off for the weekend adventure and who cares if the weather forecast said rain rain and more rain…

Normally back in Australia when you get two blokes together for a weekend – it would involve alot of couch sitting, football and beers….not so for the french boys.

JL was super excited to go to the markets early the next morning to buy up bountiful amounts of food to prepare lunches and dinners to remember!

After having the market boys chatting me up – the boys whisked me home so I could be their apprentice by chopping, slicing and dicing!

Over the next two days JL prepared so much food!…and what makes matters worse…I consumed it all!!! And don’t get me started on the wine consumption !! eeeekkkkkkk

Here are some photos of the how the weekend unfolded…’in the kitchen’! (after clicking on the first lot of photos…click to the next date 21 for more!)

Shows galore!

December 9, 2009

Just returned from a fabulous shopping spending spree in London…and it didn’t disapoint me as usual…purchases included boots…dresses…christmas pressies…food…and plenty of live shows!

Calendar Girls – brought the tickets from a ‘last minute’ kiosk which got me a great seat right up the front for a full frontal view of the nude calendar girls. So expertly done – I didn’t see a thing! Was I blinking at the wrong time?? But one of the actresses who was a bigger lady – gave us all an eye full by jumping up and down and her bossoms were going this way and that. Was a wonderful show!

Christmas with the Rat Pack – so there I was with Sammy, Deano and Frank – and boy it was like going back in time. The scene is set as if we were in a night club at the Sands Casino in Las Vegas – the boys strutted their stuff like professionals…I was highly impressed. The audience couldn’t help but sing along with them…especially when ‘ Jack the Knife’ came on.

Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – This would of had to been the best show I’ve seen in a long while. Marvelous costumes…witty one offs…overdosing on everything gay…and so spot on with the film …Jason Donovan was good…but the others just as good if not better! Why oh why do those boys have the bodies us women crave for????!!!!

If you are in London take my advice…GO SEE A SHOW!
